Here goes. Here is a list of some of my favorite things of 2011. If I had the money, I'd totally buy 1 of each for all of you ;) The list is short but these items rock! Def. not a necessity but they've been nice to have.
Contigo Mugs - these are amazing! They hold hot beverages for hours.
Heavenly Organics Chocolates - My favorite is the mint flavored. This is just dark chocolate, honey and mint flavoring. Now I can indulge from time to time.
Avalon Organics Biotin B Shampoo (Thickening) - I love, love, love this shampoo. I get it at a discount on vitacost.com
IngenuiTEA - This has to be the best tea invention to date! I use lots of bulk, loose, organic herbs for my tea. This is the perfect way to brew it. Super simple and easy clean-up.
Zevia Soda - My current favorite flavor is Ginger. Mmmm! It's nice to have a soda from time to time that does not contain any sugar/glycemic load.
Levi's - yes this is def. my brand of choice in jeans. I got a gift card for Christmas from my brother Nathan and his wife Colette. I was able to pick up a pair of Levi's with them. Better fit than any jeans I've ever owned and that's saying a lot!
Keen H2 Sandals - my hubby got me a pair of Keen's and I must say, I LOVE them! They are the most amazing sandals out there. You can wear them in the water, on dry land and even throw them in the washer.
Red Raspberry Leaf Tea - this helps so much with female issues during that time. Wouldn't want to be without it. My daughter is also learning the joys of drinking it.
David Nouveaux Music - it just speaks to my soul. I will daily send the children upstairs to rest/nap/do something quiet and put this one while I lay down and rest for a bit. It's so calm and restful to this sometimes weary soul.
Soaker Hose - This was wonderful for our garden this year. This gave me time to do other things outdoors while the garden was being gently watered. Slow, gentle watering is key to good gardening. I'm anxious to see how the hose is doing this spring. I saw I could keep it outdoors as long as it wasn't hooked up to the water spout and was drained. That will be a post for another time.
